As well as looking neater, having an organised beauty shelf will help you be more experimental with your make-up. Think about it, if you can see every shade of eyeshadow and lipstick you own, chances are you’re more likely to use them.
Having all your beauty bits on show also means you can keep an eye on stock levels and not get caught out when you run out of your favourite product.
So, what’s the best way to organise it all?
Sort your shelf
Having an ordered shelf can make your morning routine so much simpler. Keep all those items you use regularly at eye level so they’re easy to spot. Put smaller pots and tubes at the front and taller bottles at the back. Group products by function (moisturisers, cleansers, masks etc.) to help you see when you’re running low on something.
Utilise plates, trays and dishes
Ideal for smaller bits of make-up like single eyeshadows and lipsticks, trays and dishes keep things organised while looking pretty. Glass on mirrored surfaces look great and marble works with anything.
Reuse and recycle
Have a rifle through your house for beauty storage ideas. That espresso cup you never use? Put your make-up brushes in it. Got a vintage jewellery box collecting dust? Use it to store your eyeliners and lip pencils. Think outside the box – literally!
Take inspiration from the pros
Professional make-up artists are masters of beauty organisation. One of their favourite tricks? Using pallets. Decant your lipsticks and eyeshadows into an empty pallet to make things neater and portable.
If in doubt, head to Muji
